The General Hospital in Vienna, the Allgemeines Krankenhaus (AKH), has a history dating back to 1693. Its founder was Emperor Leopold I. Its purpose was to provide care and shelter to the invalid and poor. By 1696, there were 1,000 people taking advantage of its services. A change in policy and focus resulted in its renaming as the General Hospital of the Sick under Emperor Joseph II in 1784.
As the years progressed, so, too, did the hospital adding annexes and departments. It was not, however, until 1964, that the decision was made to erect a new facility. Between 1964 and 1971, the Vienna General Hospital embarked on a revolutionary pattern of growth and improvement. They added new clinics and improved their technology. There were clinics in pediatrics, child and adolescent neuropsychiatry and even a day care facility. The official opening took place in June 1994. Today, the Vienna General Hospital offers its patients fully realized treatment in various areas from gynecology to urology and all points between.
